First Iranian Women Rugby Referee in Europe
After the success of the first Muslim woman referee in Asian Rugby by Ms. Getmeh Nourie, this time Ms. Marzieh Eftekhary built upon that success by refereeing the recent matches at the Quartet tournament in Germany. She led as the main referee and also as assistant referee in other matches for the tournament. This participation was appreciated by the organizers of the tournament. This demonstrated that the Iranian Rugby is developing well on both the team level and also on the refereeing level, which are essential for the development of women rugby in Iran
